Resources

Come see what the IDC has to offer. We provide an access point for vast project resources. Everything from workstations, 3d modeling, mockup prototyping tools, and inspiration to push your creativity, you'll find something interesting to draw, build, learn, make or do. Drop by and experience IDC.

Design Shop

Located in the basement of the College of Design East building, students can use the facilities to prototype models and refine designs. There is an exterior space which is available to use 24/7 by students with proper buzzcard access, and an interior space which requires supervision and prior training. 

Invention Studio

Founded in late 2009, the Invention Studio is a student-run maker space open to all of Georgia Tech. It is staffed by the Prototyping Instructors, student volunteers who are on hand to train you and help with your projects. Use of the studio is free for all students, faculty and staff of Georgia Tech, regardless of year, major, or prior experience.

3D Printing Room at the Georgia Tech Invention Studio

The 3D Printing Room, located in the MRDC, is home to the Studio's vast collection of rapid prototyping machines. However, this room offers much more than just 3D Printing. 3D scanners and Vinyl Cutters can be used by any students and all of these machines come with material (or you can BYOM if you choose). 

IPDL Helping Hands

Ideal for precision work like electronics or detail work, this soldering helping hand keeps your work steady while you can focus on perfecting your solder. The helping hand may also come in handy for delicate gluing operations. 

COA Plotter Room

The plotter is a computer printer for printing vector graphics. The Plotter Room has two HP Designjet 4000s. They will plot on 36" and 42" paper. 

Vinyl Cutter at Invention Studio

The vinyl cutter can be used to create stickers and labels out of vinyl. The Roland STIKA SV-15 is located in the 3D printer room (MRDC 2104).
